>you won't need a 750W PSU. 650W will be more than enough
The difference in price was miniscule, I got a good deal on the 750. I also like having wattage headroom for possible future upgrades and/or OCing. Is there a downside to running a larger PSU than you need? I don't think PSUs draw more power than needed, so in theory I shouldn't pay a higher electricity bill using a 1000W PSU or a 650W one when both will only draw the power the system needs?

So this my actual build

My monitor is shitting itself, and my PC will sometimes freeze for no reason. I can't find the default component, so why not upgrade everything.

I don't play as much but I use the Steam Link to play some shit with my family (Sonic Racing, Slap City, Overcooked).

Should I go for the 2600 140€ or 3600 240€ ?
I don't really need the performance but I'm more interested in the Spectre mitigation, should I care as a consumer ?

Should I change my GPU or it's fine for the kind of thing I do ?

How old is this build? The 4770K and Haswell's still hold up quite nicely today for games and some 3D environments. I just got the 3700X for my new build since i need the extra power for workstation use. Keeping my 4770K though. You could still easily get a few more years out of these two if you don't find yourself not getting the desired performance in what you do.

>> No.72155267

A good time to upgrade CPUs is after a new socket has been released and it's been given a few months to mature. Either you can upgrade your motherboard and CPU and won't experience the problems early adopters have or can upgrade your existing CPU to another one of the same socket after initial shock when prices deflate due to new tech. AMD is a lot better when it comes to CPUs than Intel because they don't change sockets every two years. And yes, CPUs last longer than GPUs. I'm using dual X5975s myself, which are over a decade old. Other guys still use i7 920s, i5 2500Ks, or i7 4700Ks and don't have problems. You're fine.

As for GPUs, wait for the next architecture, then a year after that for the inevitable refresh. AMD's mid-range cards haven't been updated yet.

3200 will be fine, it'll just get underclocked by the BIOS.

there's usually no drawback from using a higher wattage psu. what I usually do though is check for the noise levels of each psu which can differ from model to model, even with PSUs from the same product line. e.g. the superflower leadex iii gold 650W is much quieter (10.9 dbA) than the 750W model (26.9 dbA) and also the seasonic focus gold 750W that you selected (30.6 dbA), at the same level of quality.

I am building mainly gaming PC with monitor, however am planning to use it for coding (potentially game development so nice CPU would be cool to have). 2000£ is highest I am planning to dedicate for this build.

Currently, mainly two things are bothering me:
- Monitor: I would like to spend up to 400-450£ and not sure what would be the most cost efficiant model at this range; As I am going with NVIDIA (reasoning below), gsync would be better, but freesync support was recently released for cards with pascal or newer architecture. After lurking here for a while NVIDIA looks like that greedy bilionare who is looking for ways to rip you off, thus my scepticism for freesync support.
- GPU: I really want to go with RTX series, mainly because I am big fag and want to dip my dick in ray tracing technology. Additionally, dont feel like slapping water coolers on top of GPU by default.
